cle did not state that athletes ban-
ney. It did state that they received
.nts of it for their labors, and there
ggeston that this was because they
r themselves in the athletic depart-
but rather because It was paid to
he athletic department and in cus-
s, apparently largely through the

gifts, as the article did not make clear, money
is not, and charge accounts, room and board
tabs and cash for good performances lie outside
the regulations. As the article said later In
amplification, "Financial presents from alumni
are against the rules," and these were the
things discussed.
Crisle' is right that "the area of ' alumni
!activity in all universities is one very difficult
to police," and' that direct punitive action
against alumni who cause the rules to be
violated is impossible. He is also right that
there is no reference to alumni in the Big Ten
rules, although their financial contributions to
athletes-like those of anyone else-are very
parefully circumscribed by those rules.
CRISLER is wrong when he says "We have.
Sthe good fortune at Michigan not to have
the problem of overzealous alumni." The prob-
lem was described-in depth if not in width-
by specific cases cited in yesterday's article of,
alumni financial aid. And if "every effort is
made to discourage illegal practices" thiose
efforts seem tb have gone notably unheeded by
at least a few members of the alumni com-
munity.
Crisler undoubtedly runs one of the cleanest
of the large athletic departments in the Mid-
west.
.That is 'not to say that the descriptions of
favoritism to athletes and under-the-table aid
by alurpni contained in this week's Daily series
are inaccurate or any the less an object for
concern. It Is only to say that there appear
to be real operating-both' external and In-
ternal-restraints on the people whose job it is
to build up University athletic teams, and from
all indications these restraints are more effec-
tive here than at most comparable institutions.
And to generalize from some abuses to the
entire athletic department - including teams
and coaches-would be unjust.
The University's efforts both at establishing
lnd living within the new Big Ten aid plan are
commendable, but this does not mean that
.more could not be done to establish a climate
which would discourage both the offering and
accepting of prohibited aid. Commissions on
program and parking lot concessions may be
among the lowest in the Big Ten, but that
does not mean that such jobs should be open
only to athletes, as they now appear to be.
That Crisler and Prof. Marcus 'Plant have
"earnestly requested names and sources of
information referred to in the article" is to
their credit as administrators of the complex
system of rules and players. The Daily's in-
formation was obtained, however, almost en-
tirely on a confid'entil basis, afid so its sources
,,uch remain. The paper's purpose was to serve
its readers, that they might understand better
the role of athletics on the University campIls,
to create greater awareness of the general
benefits and problems of the athletic program.
It was not and is not to aid in the policing of
specific regulations, except insofar as greater
awareness and concern achieve that purpose.
That there is need for both is clear, even
though the University does appear to shine in
comparison with many other. institutions. It
has not earned its reputation for leadership in
the field of honesty and sportsmanship in
athletics by resting on its laurels, nor will it in
the future.
As Crisler put it in his statement to The
Daily, "It is a challenge'of all of us associated
with college sports to seek the, very highest
degree of perfection."

HAPPENS EVERY SPRING:
Educators, Legislators
Begin,.Budget Battle
By DAVID TARR
Daily Staff Writer
THE ANNUAL jousting tournament between the Legislature and
Michigan's educators opened this week and after six days of accusa-
tions, denunciations and complications came to a temporary draw.
It all began Monday night when the Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee, headed by Sen. Elmer R. Porter (R-Blissfield), introduced a.
bill to allot the University and other state institutions and departments
operational money for the 1958-59 fiscal year.
The committee recommended the University be appropriated-30
million dollars, almost a million dollars under the allotment for this
year and some eight million less than requested for next year. Most
other state schools received large slashes also.
The recommendation was for a lump sum for operations at Ann
Arbor, Flint and the yet-to-be-opened Dearborn Center.
Over the next two days University administrajors summed up what
the gigantic cut would do to the school's operations. At the minimum,
they said, it would:
ONE- Necessitate a reduction in the faculty of approximately 175
instructors and researchers; 2) Delay the opening of the University's
Dearborn Center by at least one year. The Center'is presently scheduled
to be opened in the fall of 1959. 3) Prevent establishing an Institute of
Science and Technology here. The University had asked a $2,870,000
appropriation, besides its general request, to begin this project.
4) Severely damage operations at the Flint Branch and probably
require curtailment of operations there. 5) Require elimination of the
program in human resources, with the research in the causes of
cancer, deafness, childhoodi disease and other fields. 6) Prevent enlarg-
ing enrollments and possibly necessitate curtailing them by acceptance
of fewer students next year.
The issue, was compounded on Tuesday with the publication of
the sixth report in a series of studies of higher education' in Michigan
that John Dale Russell is doing for the Legislature. Early newspaper
stories reported a statement, out of context, that saidmore efficient
use of faculty members might cut the spending of Michigan's colleges
and universities as much as three million dollars or permit education
of an additional 10,000 students. Sen. Porter picked up the reports
and used them as justification for the slashed budgets.
But the following day members of the Russell study committee
denounced the stories, pointing out that the report actually lauded
state institutions for their efficiency, and citeA only a few exceptions.
THE UNIVERSITY'S operations were commended as generally "effi-
, cient and economically organized." A theoretical -saving of about
one million dollars might be made, a committee member noted, but
only at the expense of "substantial decreases in the research activity of
faculty members, a position none of us (on the committee) supports."
In the meantime, state educators had been taking potshots at the
Senate Appropriations Committee. Gov. G. Mennen Williams called
the proposed cuts "the height of stupidity and inhumanity." University
President Harlan Hatcher said the cuts "would be one of the most
serious and most "crippling blows" suffered in recent years. The Uni-
versity Board of Regents took up the chant Friday calling the cuts
"incredible."' Regent Eugene Power ! called the recommendation com-
pletely unrelated to needs, but simply "picked out of a hat."
The yearly game of cat and mouse will resume Tuesday in Lansing
when. University officials attend a hearing before the Senate committee
to argpe its case for more money.

WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND:
Nix Ses .Truancy Record
By DREW PEARSON

ASHINGTON-Senators don't
talk - about it publicly, but
privately they resent the manner
in which Vice-President Nixon has
become an absentee presiding offi-
cer of the Senate. When he's ab-
sent,. a s(Tator has, to take" his
place in presiding over the Senate,
which causes extra work for al-
ready busy legislators.
Nixon's office is now costing the
taxpayers more than that of any
Vice-President in history. He has
an automobile with chauffeur,
which senators do not have, plus
a large staff, including one colonel,
a major, and a press agent. His
budget is $101,925 a year compared)
with $11,460 spent by Truman. Yet
his absenteeism has set a record.
Careful scrutiny, of the Con-,
gressional Record shows that the
late Vice-President Alben Barkley
worked at his job about four times'
as much as Nixon. Here is a break-
down of the time spent by both
men working at the job given
them. under the Constitution as
Vice - President of the United
States:
In 1949, when Barkley took of-
fice, the Senate sat for a total of
1,124 hours and 53 minutes, out
of which Barkley presided for 464
hours and 40 minutes.
'In 1953, when Nixon took office,
the Senate met for 763 hours and
35 minutes, of which Nixon pre-
sided 162.hours and 45 minutes.;
In 1950, Barkley's second year,

the Senate was in session 1,265,
hours and nine minutes, with
Barkley presiding 527 hours and
50 minutes.
In 1954, Nixon's second year, he,
presided only 120 hours and 31
minutes. Yet the Senate that year
was in session more than during
Barkley's second year-a total of
I,198 hours and 17 minutes. Nixon
worked at his job just one-fourth
of the time Barkley did.
In 1952, Barkley's last year as
Vice - President, he had an eye:
operation and therefore was ab-
sent for two weeks, February 7 tO
February 20. Nevertheless, he man-
aged to preside 219 hours and nine
minutes out of 651 hours and 24
minutes of senatorial sessions.
In contrast, Nixon presided over
the Senate only 50 hours and 53
minutes, though the Senate was
in session considerably longer,
namely 801! hours and 42 minutes.
This is' why some senators are
talking about putting a time clock
in the Senate cloakroom for the
Vice-President to punch when he
goes to work.
* . . ,
An old man who refused to be-
come bitter died last week. He had'
every excuse to become bitter. He.
had been appointed to the highest'
court in the land-only to lose out
on Senate confirmation by one
vote.
The people who rallied the Sen-
ate votes to defeat John J. Park-

er's' appoinmtent to the Supreme
Court back in 1930 were organized
labor and Walter White of the
National Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People. Yet
instead of becoming sour, Parker
turned the other cheek. He became
their best legal champion. 'Indeci-
sion after decision, he upheld the
rights of Negroes. and of labor as
presiding judge of the Fourth
Circuit Court of Appeals.
I used to see Judge Parker when
he came to Washington for court
conferences. He would pad through
.the lobby of the Mayflower quite
unobtrusively, looking a little
lonely, but not sad. By one vote he
had missed the greatest court in
the nation, yet he kept his sense of
humor, went about his everya y
routine just as if nothing had hap-
penel,
The late O. Max Gardner, Gov-
ernor of North Carolina, a Demo-
crat, tried to get Parker, a Re-
publican, appointed to the Su-
preme Court when other vacancies
occurred.
So, the other day, Judge Parker,
a little :tired but never bitter, went
on to the next world. ,If in that,
world he should meet William
Green and Walter White, the men
who defeated him, he'll be just as
kindly, just as philosop'hical to-,
ward them as he was toward their
jmovements when in life he 'wrote
ringing opinions in their defense.

For the Students:
An Extra Effort

Again Mr. Crisler wrote: "Another state-
nent in the article suggests, 'Gifts from
lumni, alumni clubs or friends are pro-,
ibited.' This is an unqualified statement.
here can be found no language in the
tegulations which prohibits our Detroit
lumni from giving an "M" ring to football
layers; our Chicago alumni from present-
nig watches to Chicago area athletes, or
vatches being presented to one of our
hampionship hockey teams by alumni.

rT THIE INGLIS estate yesterday an unpub-
licized conference was held for the benefit-
of about 15 selected students. The topic of the
conference, sponsored by the political science
department, was "U.S. Foreign Policy Toward
NATO." Called in as consultants were both a
Pentagon Major General and a State Depart-
ment high official.
The educational value of the conference to
the students was considerable. Besides learning
more about new facts and plans of our govern-
ment policy, much was learned of what. lies
behind objective facts and stated policy.
Enlightening statements were made in the
confidence of the group which, although not
violating security, certainly would not be re-
ceived well in all countries abroad. Policy was
shorn of its public relations aspects and looked
at with the power politics realism in which it'
is formulated.
But' most revealing was the nature of the
men who make top policy for "the U.S. We do
not wish to generalize, but both the military
and the diplomatic minds do have tieir bureau-
cratic infiexibilities and incapabilities. The
nature of these men seems much too inclined
to accept a'dangerous status quo than to take
reasonable chances for making progress.

Re-Rebuttal
To the Editor:
THE REBUTTAL of Mssrs. Ri-
mer and Matecun (March 19)
against Mr. Goodrich concerning
the problem of local eating estab-
lishments was read'by the present
writer, digested, and regurgitated.
Therefore, I am presenting a re-
buttal to Mr. Goodrich's rebuttal.
You told Mr. Goodrich to wash
his'hands before eating. I wish you
would show him where the wash-
room or .labatory is. Professing to
have worked in restaurants, I
should imagine you to know, then,
that in most other states, an ab-
sence of such places is a clear
violation of the state health regu-
lations.
Although I do not know the pre-
vailing laws in such matters in the
state of Michigan, I do know that
Ann Arbor restaurants provide, on
the whole, no facilities of this kind.
When's the last time you used the'
washroom, boys?
Your faith in "out-of-towners"
as guides for evaluating the food
prices in town is admirable, but
wrongly conceived. True, 'food,
prices here are not unreasonable
if you pay little attention to the
Squality or selection offered.
One may lunch on the moderate
sum of $.50 or two bowls of chili;
the students' favorite. food. Or
.,v. an ah anh',,,...e -asl.

aging, but does not bear on the
question under consideration. Mr.
Goodrich has worked 6 years, pro-
fessionally, in restaurants; I have
worked one year less. We have
seen and also WORKED in them,
and your attempt to even mention
first-class establishments along-
side these "eateries" leave me and,
I'm sure, Mr. Goodrich quite puz-
zled. Where did you say you
worked before?
I must say that you both give
the impression of holding "waiting,
Jobs" in town. By the tone of your
letter-your outright rudeness to,
Mr. Goodrich, who has posed some
t'sane queries on a problem con-'
fronting us all-I have little doubt,
that you must have, at some time,
served him in one of our local,
"first-class" establishments.

Actually, I said both of these
things concerning women's de-
ferred rush at both places. Here
is my argument. ,
At present, I am basically
against deferred rushing for wom-
en. I feel that from, both the
sororities' and rushees' stand-
points many disadvantages have
occurred. What I said about marks,'
for example, was this: Although
marks were higher first semester,
}satistics on the second semester
will probably show lower marks.
Everywhere I have been I have
stressed such disadvantages as
marks' (although .sometimes not
mentioning every disadvantage)
and said that I am against de-
ferred rushing unless it can be
shown to me through concrete
evidence that my opinions as to
the effect of deferred rushing on
women are not correct.
